Maybe.. or your client is sending bad information. In either case Squid
just logs whatever it got from the client.

In Squid-2.5.STABLE4 redirectors got the username exacly as-is, making the
redirector protocol fail badly on usernames with spaces and similar "odd"

From Squid-2.5.STABLE5 and later (including current nightly snapshots)
redirectors get the username URL-encoded just as it is in access.log.
